Beyoncé Rocked Custom-Made Outfit By Beirut-Based Designer On ‘Black Is King’ Film

You may have heard of Beyoncé’s latest jaw-dropping creation, her musical film/visual album Black is King, directed by Beyoncé herself.

The entire album is an ode to the Black ancestry and has become even more relevant with the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

The massive array of exquisite costumes shown in the film only further expands on the beauty of African heritage.

Styled by long-time stylist Zerina Akers, Queen B appeared in many different outfits, each more impressive than the next.

But there was one particular outfit Beyoncé wore by Beirut-born label Ashi Studio, launched by Saudi designer Mohammed Ashi, that was particularly striking.

The custom-made outfit was handcrafted with exotic feathers and took hours of work to create.

“Mr. Ashi was honored to create this elaborate hand-made embroidered piece, which took 70 hours of work, that was featured in the Black is King film released by Disney and directed by Beyonce yesterday in the states,” said Ashi Studio in a post.

It is not the first time Beyoncé is draped in designs from Lebanon. The Grammy Award-winning artist is no stranger to the world of Lebanese designs.

Time and time again she blessed the eyes donning Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, Reem Acra, and more.

In addition, she wore Ashi Studio for the 2018 Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 concert in South Africa.

The masterpiece, Black is King, which Beyoncé called her “labor of love” and “passion project,” is out now on Disney+.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. ?please don’t get me hype?? “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊? Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B
